The San Diego chapter of the IGDA have announced that, as part of the previously announced Sandbox Game Symposium, The Behemoth's John Baez (Alien Hominid), Areae head Raph Koster and Midway's Steve Crane will be participating in a panel discussion on 'the challenges of diverging markets for video games.' The panel, moderated by DFC Intelligence's Wanda Meloni, will be known as When Worlds Collide, and will take place Saturday, August 4 at the San Diego Convention Center. The panel will look at how the industry will evolve when "mammoth productions from heavyweight studios supported by hordes of A-list developers" and "'garage' games developed on shoestring budgets by independent and comparatively unknown developers" compete for attention in the same marketplace. Says the official description, "leaders and pioneers will meet to share their thoughts on the challenges of diverging markets for video games," adding that "as game developers and business executives from both sides of the 'big versus small' divide, each panelist brings a unique perspective to the discussion." More information on the panel discussion and registration information can be found at the San Diego IGDA's website.
